  1. I caught up to the most current episode in Hajime no Ippo: Rising! after taking about a month to watch all of Hajime no Ippo and Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger from the beginning. I really enjoy the show.

    As for FMA:B I just though it was a little to curt of an ending. Maybe I'm too caught up in philosophical ramblings and whatnot, but I just didn't think there was an exciting conclusion to match the strength of the rest of the show.


  2. Sorry, I didn't think much of the ending of FMA: Brotherhood. The rest of the show is incredible though.

    I recently watched all of Hajime no Ippo and caught up to where they are at on the newest season. I love it. My backlog of anime is huge. Dying to watch Kill la Kill, Coppelion, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, Gailei Donna, and after reading up on Nagi no Asukara I want to start that one up too. And despite the puke-inducing 3D of Arpeggio of Blue Steel, I want to watch Battleship the Anime more than I can say. However my upcoming PCAT and my far-too-frequent Physical and Inorganic Chemistry exams have been hindering me to no end. At this point it's just a wishlist.

    And for what it's worth Halcyon, I always enjoyed reading your reviews!


  3. I wasn't thinking they were lying about the disc, it just seems strange to me that they are selling a new game as used. Normally this wouldn't be strange to me, but since used game sales are much more profitable for them, it just seemed very weird to me. However, like I said earlier it could just be me over thinking it. Also, Brush says it happens so maybe my friend really did just get lucky by getting a disc someone decided not to play after buying it.


  4. Okay, here is something that has been sort of bothering me. Yesterday I went to Gamestop with my friend and he picked out a couple of used games to buy, one being the Witcher 2 for Xbox. While he was waiting in line another friend of mine came in who I went to talk to while my other friend was checking out. When my friend was done we left Gamestop and he proceeded to tell me how he really "lucky" because he had got a brand new disc for the Witcher 2. The lady working there told him that apparently someone had bought the Witcher, opened the case, and returned it about an hour later without even playing the game, so despite being sold as "used" it was actually brand new.

    Maybe I'm over thinking it, but this story sounds dodgy as shit to me. It sounds way too convenient for Gamestop that something like this happened and I just can't bring myself to believe that someone bought the game to open it and return it.

    So there is my 2 cents


  5. Though I'd be cool with it if they let you enter the UPC code off of your old cd case for a 95% voucher for that game or something. Mainly because I never throw away my cases, lol. (Except for FFT's, which I still maintain wasn't my fault.)

    This is actually a really cool idea, though I don't think they would offer such a high discount on the games. But even if it was 50% and upward I would buy several of the old games I owned. I'm a hoarder as well - been gaming since the days of Super Nintendo and I have never intentionally thrown away a case (family not included) or resold a single game, so I would be one happy camper!


  6. SO! I got to see Pacific Rim tonight for some reason! I thought it came out on the 12th, but if they really wanna show it on the 11th....

    Anyway, I thought it was pretty great. I dunno if it's the fuel of human dreams or whatever Kojima was saying, but it was definitely a cool movie, even though I thought the ending was a little bit weak. It's a fantastic slugfest of monsters and robots though, and did we really need anything else? That, and I got that sweet poster by the MGS artist as well! XD


  7. Yeah, I'm excited to try out Valkyria Chronicles myself. I bought it about a year ago and brought it over to my parents house and I lost it. I did my best doing that thing where you don't want to buy another because you know it will show up, but I decided I may as well support a game that's (supposedly) really cool, so after a year I have purchased it again. As you may be able to imagine, I refuse to take it over to my parents house....


  8. I just got the Virtual Boy today myself. In addition I have the Triforce, Peach's Parasol, and Olimar's Ship (a tiny model anyway).

    I can't help but think how sad and pathetic I am though. I looked everywhere for that damn K.K. last night, but I couldn't find the little bugger! How do you screw up things in Animal Crossing!?


  9. Also I'm really not concerned if a character I want in Smash 4 doesn't make it; odds are I can just hack 'em into Brawl anyways :D

    While that's true, it's still just the model of an already existing character. I personally get really psyched to see movesets that are specific to the character including cool things from their own games. However, if you don't get bothered by that at all then I guess you are the winner here, because you won't ever not see your character in there =)

    I just realized who I would absolutely love to see representing the Advance Wars franchise: Brenner from Days of Ruin. I think he would be badass, though I don't think they would include him. If anyone they would probably do someone from the original like Andy or Max.


  10. Well, I don't know about that. I was at Apex 2013 in January, which is the biggest Smash tournament in the world, and all three Smash games had competitors with an absolutely insane level of play going on. The Brawl matches were incredible.

    That's very true. I only got to watch the stream, but Grand Finals at Apex 2013 for Brawl were absolutely amazing! It's always nice to see an underdog with an underutilized character upset the (seemingly) cocky champ with his top tier character pick.


  11. You missed 5 very exciting years in the 2000's. :P

    There was quite the competitive scene. There's a lot of depth in SSBM. I just found out this year that even with the hugely diminished player base, there are still shifts in the "official tier list" because of newly emerging strategies.

    I wasn't intending on getting a WiiU any time soon, but depending on how well they develop this game... they might rope me in.

    Oh, I realize that SSB is wildly competitive in it's own regard, but all I was saying is that in the FGC it tends to get trashed on a lot essentially because of its departure from normal fighting game mechanics, though imo if it's fun, who gives a damn? Melee was significantly better competitive-wise though, and while SSBM is going to be at EVO this year, it was because of the fundraising support they gather. It's definitely not a regular there. But this is beside the point. The point is that SSB is fun as hell, and while it's not necessarily played at a bunch of major tourneys, its still probably the funnest party game around.

    I would be SO happy to see some Advance Wars characters show up. I've been dying for a new game, though I personally (please don't kill me) prefer the reboot to the original. Also, Isaac (or anyone really) from Golden Sun is an incredible idea, Little Mac, someone from the Fire Emblem franchise that isn't sword based/main character like Tharja (though if they wanted to put Lyndis in, I would take that over anyone else! Also, someone mentioned The Tactician? That would probably be a really cool character).

    I don't think that they are going to include very many 3rd party characters. When watching the Megaman gameplay video, he said that he wasn't just going to let any old 3rd party character in, or something to that effect. I won't get my hopes up to see too many, but they may have a couple staples. Simon Belmont sounds cool...


  12. I'm very excited for this. I'm a pretty big fighting game enthusiast, and in the FGC (fighting game community) SSB has always been a bit of a joke because of it's uncompetitive nature. While I do tend to really try more in competitive games, I've always thought SSB was a hell of a lot of fun, and I think this iteration looks just the same. I'm also very excited for these new character announcements. It looks like they are really going with some cool ideas, and I really hope they dig into the huge cast of Nintendo greats that they've got stored away, and get rid of some of those clone characters (gtfo Falco and Wolf). If they have a 40 character cast of completely unique characters, I will blow unfathomable amounts of time into this game. I spent so much time playing the older iterations already that I know this new one would have absolutely endless replay value.
